Borile B500 Ricki Ready for Production

Unique Motorcycles

After the official presentation that will take place during the Dubai Gulf Bike Week (Feb. 9-12, 2011), the first Borile B500 Ricki will be ready to be produced.

This B500 Ricki scrambler is unique in its category, entirely made by Umberto Borile’s hand in the most classic of the old-style shape.

Only 20 B500ricki motorcycles will be produced according to this design; it’ll be a special motorcycle dedicated to all those who love motorcycles.

Twenty pieces will be produced upon request and sold at 17,500 euros ($24,000 USD) each. But more news has arrived from Borile.

While waiting for the new Cafè Racer and the new Enduro model, the "Multiuso" is ready to be produced, and in March 2011 will be sold at 4,700 euros ($6,500 USD).

Borile was founded in 1988 by Umberto Borile in Venezia, Italy. The company’s first motorcycle was a Piuma 520, which was built by hand like all of their other machines.

The company bascially builds vintage machines with modern technology.
